    I got Wingspan and Cloudraker from ToyDojo and I've got SoC on preorder, so no clone hunting for me. I'll still keep an eye out, tho.

    At Northtown TRU and there are a couple TLK deluxe Megatron and Skullitron. Also a couple Cybertrons there, and I'll be returning mine which makes 3. I can't justify that price for him and no good sales have come across. At that price he'll shelfwarm anyway, so I doubt I'll have trouble getting another when there is a decent deal.

    FYI on the Lego front - there is a Saturn V rocket if anyone still is looking for one. Didn't check the price but if I remember correctly they overprice it by $10 or so.

    Now now, Woodbury is as fine a village as any. I've grown rather fond of it :) 

    Is there a reason to start yet? Has it been reported as found at US retail? MN is not exactly known for its early access.

    It's ok, just had wayyyyy too many bad experiences out there. Horrible customer service and other things. Don't wanna get political so I'll leave it at that.

    Anyways, anybody else looking for MPM Prime & Bumblebee? Are these supposed to be out soon? I feel like the ROTF Leader Prime mold is superior, especially the alt mode but I have 3 of that mold (regular, Buster, Asia Striker) but that doesn't mean I'm not gonna get an MPM version.

    Takara's reveal of MP-40 being just a repaint of Hot Rod with the Targetmaster the TRU version MP Rodimus Prime came with just gave me the excuse to spend more money on 3rd party MP stuff. ...Which I just did as I ordered a not-MP Beachcomber, Brawn, and Cosmos off BBTS today as my birthday gift to myself. (Birthday being tomorrow.)

    Happy early birthday, man!

    Oh hey, cool! Takara Overlord. I don't usually sprint for the extra cost of Takara, but he's got the little Giga and Mega titanmasters and that's c--

    Isn't Bumblebee already available, or is that from online retailers only? I'm interested in Prime, but won't be devastated if I miss out. Would be nice to find a buddy o' pal and go in on a buy 1 get 1 nicely discounted, though...

    Are you up on the details of this thing...do you know when it's supposed to be available? I read where someone claimed to have recently bought it at TRU, but when they were ringing up the computer said it wasn't supposed to be for sale till Nov... :eek:  I haven't been following this thing closely, though, so what's accurate and what's interweb folklore...I dunno.

    That's about all I've heard as well. Guess I'll see what happens when it shows up in the wild.

    Happy Birthday, MST3KFan!

    With regards to windows and light degradation, I guess I'll just have to keep my blinds down and hope for the best.

    So looking at pics of Overlord... TT version has 2 faces, but they can also be powermasters? Anyone know if that's like something that clips on or swaps out or what?
